Duplex flat in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Our house is in the very center of Amsterdam, in the oldest part, on a canal. It was built in 1685. It is a duplex flat with, on the ground floor, a bedroom and the bathroom (with large shower) and, separate, a toilet. There is also a small study/library on this floor. A rather steep staircase leads to the upper (top) floor, where the living room and the kitchen are located. The view from the living room is stunning: you can see the beautiful Old Church (the oldest building of Amsterdam) on the other side of the canal.
The surroundings of the house are very lively, but inside the house, you won't have any noise disturbance.

All the tourist sites of Amsterdam are close by and train, tram and metro stations are within walking distance as are some great restaurants and famous bars.

About Our Family

We are Philip (62), writer/translator, and Wendie (60), managing director at the department of History, European Studies and Religious Studies of the University of Amsterdam. We have two grown up daughters who live on their own and only occasionally will join us in our holidays.
 

Lifestyle

We are interested in city exchanges in Spring or Autumn (f.e. New York, Roma, London, Berlin, Madrid, Lisbon). In Summer we prefer a place near the sea or a lake, preferably within walking distance of a (small) town or village (only one person of our family has a driving licence).

Countries we would like to visit in the next years are Norway, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy (always!), United States (always!).
We'd also love a winter holiday in a skiing area (Italy, Austria, Switzerland).

We could offer non simultaneous exchange from 27 December 2019 till 7 January 2020.
